Clean lines, sophisticated comfort and refined details are the leitmotifs of a design language where simplicity is never obvious and each object reflects the heritage of De Padova revisited by Paul Smith’s flair. EVERYDAY LIFE is developed around upholstered furniture, the gravitational centre of interior living and the natural liaison between fashion and design, and it extends to furnishing accessories, including coffee tables, leather banquettes,and accessories for the home.
Details are here entrusted with the task to add an unexpected element to the classic elegance of the whole while celebrating the value of De Padova craftsmanship.

Sofas and armchairs – undisputed central figures together with the poufs – are marked by contrasting stitching that evoke sartorial know-how, building this way narrative connections between two worlds. Leather straps, which bind to the structure to become an integral part of the design, are another key element, with minutely coloured details.
Functional leather pockets are also hooked onto the finely rounded armrest with its pleasurable ergonomics and tactility.

A true master of colours, Paul Smith reveals his signature in the palette, which includes deep shades of midnight blue and peacock, neutrals such as ecru, earthy tones such as brick red, and the vibrant surprising note of lime green – the iconic colour of the collection.
